On Tuesday night the St. Louis County Council gave final approval to put a sales tax initiative on the April ballot that would fund improvements to the Arch grounds, trails and local parks.

Lenders in St. Louis County will soon be required to offer mediation to homeowners on the edge of foreclosure.
Councilwoman Hazel Erby, who introduced the new plan, told council members something had to be done to help slow the rate of foreclosures in the county.
